I have a master plan to make more money than ever imaginable.

I’ve been busy working in my shed at the bottom of the garden, perfecting time travel via my Time Tunnel Mk3. I’m so excited, I just had to tell you how my brilliantly cunning plan will make effective use of my machine.

Having seen so many of the world’s number 1 sales trainers and guru’s on social media, in fact I found one recently that’s so good, they are also number 2, 3 and 4. I’m going to enlist their help as they seem perfect for my quest. They all speak about their tales of ‘success’ and how they have made billions for their customers.

Should I do a bit more due diligence? No, don’t be silly – some of these people are so important and successful, they don’t even have to bother changing the stock blue hero image on their LinkedIn profile. When they do, it’s usually an image telling us how great they are. In fact, some are so gifted, they haven’t even had to work in sales for any significant amount of time. If they have, they were obviously so good they don’t even have to go into detail.

I’m talking super confident, super successful, super amazing individuals.

Anyway, back to my plan. What struck me was, out of so many of the world’s number 1 sales trainers and gurus, very few, if any, have actually grasped the concept of social selling. Lots of them still talk about cold calling, cold emails, leaflets, catalogues and events. Which is perfect.

And here’s the genius part of my plan. I’m going to speak to as many of them as possible and learn as much as I can. That way, when I take my trip in the Time Tunnel Mk3 back to 1991 – I will be the best salesman around.

Then all I will have left to do, is buy a Filofax.
